Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

No subject arouses more passionate controversy than faith and freedom. From the rise of Islam and terrorism to the demise of America's religious traditions, faith and freedom cut to the heart and soul of America and her position in the world. The issues spawned by faith and freedom spark untold controversies about our perception of history and our vision for the future. Recognizing the importance of faith and freedom to America's future, Grove City College held a lecture series inviting renowned scholars to discuss the intersection between religion and politics. Faith, Freedom, and the Future is the culmination of those lectures. Addressing the issues from a wide variety of perspectives, Faith, Freedom, and the Future is essential reading for all interested in exploring the role of faith in public institutions. Contributors: Michael Behe, James M. Billington, Charles W. Dunn, Jean Bethke Elshtain, Robert P. George, George Marsden, Mark A. Noll, Marvin Olansky, and George Weigel.

Book News Annotation:

Dunn (Grove City College) presents a series of eight lectures that argue for the inclusion of religion in American political life. Collectively, they suggest that the impact of Christianity on American freedoms has been largely downplayed and misunderstood and that it is responsible for most of what is good about the United States.
